                                                                                                      Church in America!

                                                                                  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
                    be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
                               May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
                            and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host,
                                     by the Divine power of God,
                         cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits
                    who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
